Well it is very calm here right now at 12:45 in the afternoon. The sky was blue earlier, but now it is starting to cloud up. Our friends in Louisiana have lost electricity in one part of their town. Our coastal towns are already flooding because of the storm surge. Some idiots have even had to be rescued from their rooftops because they didn't get out in time. What part of "mandatory evacuation" didn't they understand. I hope they send these people a bill for the services of the rescue helicopter. I even saw some teens and other people at the edge of the surf. Debris from a broken pier was flying everywhere. They could have been easily hurt or killed. Pure idiocy. Some poor rescuer will have to risk his life to save these imbeciles.
Then we have the other side of the coin. People who are panicking and have fled areas where they have been told to shelter in place. They clog the freeways for those people that really need to leave.
We are trying to be prepared and prayerful here. We would appreciate your prayers as we weather this storm tonight.
